We stayed at this lovely friendly hotel for a week. And could not be happier with our choice. The hotel is located just 1 min walk from Termini station. Which is great as we took Leonardo express from FCO airport which ends its route at Termini station. So it took us just 14.50 Euro each and 30 min to get to the Andreina hotel. The hotel is easy to find. Just be attentive and follow the sign at the entrance. The small elevator will take you to the 4th floor right to the Hotel. The owner whos name is Andreina was very friendly and helpfull. She greeted us and showed into our room. We had to use Hotel's personal elevator to get down to our floor. It was unusual but easy to use. You can skip elevator and use staircase to get out of hotel. So it's up to you. The room was spacious and for two of us we had three twin beds. The aircondition worked well so we never felt suffocated despite the heat outside (+45C degrees). The breakfast was served every morning since 8 a.m. till 9:30 a.m. The food was simple - croissants, coffee, hot milk, assorted jam, butter, bread and orange juice. We never used free wifi provided by hotel as we were lucky to have our personal benifited wifi in the room. The Double Room # 32 has a small trick. In a corner right opposite the entrance door where the separate bed is located there is a free wifi spot called "Belkin". Seems like this is a Russian guy who permanently lives behind the wall. :)) We used his wifi every day and the connection never broke. The bus station and Metro is just near Termini so it won't take you long to get anywhere you want, As the red line of Metro didn't work, we used bus #64 to get to St Pete's Cathedral. The Colosseo is just two stops by Metro, take the blue line. The Metro is simple to use. The hotel authorizes you credit card a few days prior the arrival. The amount is equal to the first night of your stay (70 Euro if I'm not mistaken). Don't get panicked. They just block it and never charge. This sum was unblocked automatically and got back to my credit card just a few days before departure. Please mind that on departure you have to pay additional city tax which was 28 Euros for 1 week. You have to pay it in cash. If you wanna go shopping, you will find several big department stores in a neiboughhood - Coin (right at Termini station), Oviesse and Upin (in direction of St Maria Maggiore). We also went to the Lido di Ostia beach (about 40 min from Termini Metro station to Lido di Ostia). Take Blue line to Pyramide station than do not exit just take it left to another platform and change train in direction of Christoforo Colombo. We got off at Ostia Centro. Nice sandy beach. We paid 23 Euros for 2 entrances, 2 sunberds, one umbrella. There are lots of cafes around with delicious food and house wine. If you would love to experience amazing local dishes and atmosphere right near the Hotel Andreina, just go right and turn behind the corner in direction of St Maria Magiorre. The Restaurant Elettra is located on Via Principe Amadeo. Amazing food and great service for reasonable price is guaranteed. Would definately return to the Hotel Andreina again and again and again!!!!!
